Abstract

Based on the Rosenblueth hypothesis, atrioventricular nodal behavior is evaluated using a method involving the coupling interval at the level of the atrioventricular nodal step delay. H the sum of the coupling interval at the level of step delay and the resultant step delay is greater than the atrial coupling interval, Wenckebach periodicity results; if the sum is less than the atrial coupling interval, the reverse Wenckebach phenomenon occurs; and if both are equal, steady state conduction is reached.
